In my opinion, probably the best Sharks squad in my lifetime. Brett Howland was so fast its not funny.

Imagine that back line with the addition of our existing forward pack (not that I didn't rate our late 90's forwards)
Mmm....:)

Used to love watching this team run around - they tended to score more than 2 tries per game (good ones at that).

Thanks for the flashback Sharks Forever.

Looking back our jersey's were pretty vulgar in that era - someone mentioned this recently on the forum. Also loose fitting!

Funny enough I own 2 of them.:p

Dykes had an awesome short kicking game, he also had great vision. Healey IMO at the time had a kicking game only 2nd to Laurie Daley... cross field bombs with pin point accuracy finding ET, Best and Peach out wide... Nick Graham linking out wide with his speed men and busting through gaps... Long and Lang running straight flat out at a squllion miles an hour... Rogers jinkng his way through the defence before flying through for length of the field tries...
Man, those were the days haha... What a team! So disappointing they didn't win it this year.

Unbelievable team, easily the best in the comp that year. Robbed by one of Australias biggest ever tools.

If we beat the Dragons in that final, I'm sure we would have accounted for the Storm in the GF.
If only... :(

Greastest Shark team in my history. I'v got this very picture as the back ground on my computers and phone.

We should have won it that year. :(

A small part of me will never forgive Mat Rogers for going off with that injury he got in the final!

I was recently divorced and hoping this team would give me something to be happy about.

*sigh*

btw - McIntyre system screwed us. Didn't get a second chance.
